These two films may not be the best in the effects department, but they're great fun the whole family can enjoy. Plenty of adventure without the gory violence of some other versions of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story. John Rhys-Davies and David Warner are always fun to watch. The players really seem to be into their parts and bring the story to life. The films are done very much in the tradition of the family adventure films of the 60's with great success. If your children love dinosaurs, but you'd rather not subject them to something as intense as the Jurassic Park films, then this is a wonderful alternative.

Made over 20 years ago, this is the retelling of a classic and has a bonus - the sequel that came after it is included.

Starring some acting legends - John-Ryse Davies (Indiana Jones 1 & 3, Sliders), David Warner (Star Trek V & VI, Time After Time, Time Bandits) and the then unknown but always working Eric McCormack (Will and Grace) the adventure takes them on a journey to prove the lost world exists. Eric is quite good and funny in the role as the reporter looking for the scoop!

Harmony Gold is the production company and the special effects are a little trite, but the chemistry of the characters is fun and the story is basically true to the original. There are a few additions that they need to give license to so the story could be more timely.

Filled with action, suspense, drama and humor - it is a 90 minute romp through Africa to find the most artificial looking Dinosaurs I have ever seen. But ignoreing the technology of the late 80's..it is is fun.

The three disc set includes the sequal which furthers the adventure sof the six travelers complete with their idiosyncracies and issues and an even more glorious threat - man will destroy the Dinosaurs in the lost world!

The third disc is an only early 80's movie "The Mummy's Revenge" - A very bad B type film with gory effects and artificial mummy's . I laughed a lot but it was fun to see the 80's wardrobe and haircuts.

This is a great price for an okay movie. And another telling of a classic story. 3-27-09

Review # 40: THIS REVIEW IS RATED PG-13!
I guess I'll mention a few things NOT in the other 39...

1.)===> I have the single-disc double feature.
2.)===> The openning and closing credits of BOTH films---filmed back-to-back, in 1992---are the same,
except the title card.
3.)===> A comment about how the boy had grown up was, well, ridiculous as the films were shot on Afri-
can location the same week!
4.)===> The second feature [RETURN TO THE LOST WORLD] has a nude scene---as seen from the rear,
so to speak. Perhaps my version is "European"[?].
5.)===> These ARE feel-good family films, however---like I said---one of the film's "hotties" drops her sarong
and jumps in the lagoon naked...as seen from the rear. And a nice REAR it IS!
6.)===> There are NO complete dinosaurs seen except a pterodactyl seen from a distance---that I could just,
barely, see on MY 55" TV. You see dinosaur FEET and heads... rubber, all. Acting is great, the SFX, rubbery.
________________________________________________________________________________
Final line... I liked it, but THE LOST WORLD: JURASIC PARK was made FIVE YEARS l-a-t-e-r... it's an UN-
fair comparrison! This was harmless fun "Double Feature" with a cute butt!

I like this movie mostly because of the acting, the plot, and the adventure.
All the parts are played extremely well, the experience moves at a good pace, and everyone has a good attitude. There's no dark plot or other nastiness or gore.
If your looking for realistic dinosaurs this isn't the movie for your. Matter of fact, the rubber animals in this version are seriously bad but everything else kinda makes up for it.

Conan Doyle's famous adventure story has been filmed many times before. The most notable version is, of course, the silent version made in 1925 and its stop-motion animation of dinosaurs (by Willis H. O'Brien). Now if you're looking for something like a huge dinosaur walking in the jungle, you should avoid this one. Though this was released only one year before "Jurassic Park," the best special effects of this low-budget film is rubber puppets someone holding from under.

That does not mean `The Lost World" (1992) is a joyless ride. Actually this is a pretty good, old-fashioned adventure film that you might have seen in the 1960s and thanks to the capable cast who knows what they are doing and the beautiful scenery, this film is a pretty enjoyable one. Prolific Welsh actor John Rhys-Davies is cast as Professor Challenger, and his credible portrait of the delightfully boisterous and pompous professor virtually carries the film.

David Warner is proud Professor Summerlee who is equally believable and amusing, and so is Eric McCormack (later known as Will of the popular TV series "Will and Grace") as Edward Malone. The original book's Lord John Roxton is replaced by American millionaire Jenny Nielson (Tamara Gorski), but sadly she has little to do in this tightly-written story which is fairly faithful to Doyle's book except they changed the location to Africa (the film is shot on location in Zimbabwe).

Again I say you should not expect the eye-popping special effects of Spielberg (or Stuart Orme-directed `The Lost World' made in 2001 f or that matter). This is an old-fashioned adventure film, and it works as such.
